Children's Council of San Francisco is here to support. Financial support for child care tuition assistance is extremely limited and Children's Council of San Francisco is here to support families in accessing it when it becomes available. If you are in need of child care, please take the following steps:
Check out our Child Care Finder for child care providers in San Francisco who are open and ready to care for children. Review the photos, descriptions and make note of a few child care programs that may meet your needs.
Contact a Child Care Counselor by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 415.343.3300. We will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
Parents can also use the online tool Early Learning SF to find out if they are eligible and to apply for the Early Learning Scholarship program through the San Francisco Office Early Care and Education. Children’s Council can assist you in completing an application.
If you were already receiving a child care subsidy pre-COVID-19, contact your Family Subsidy Specialist. For help contacting your Family Subsidy Specialist, call our front desk at 415-276-2900. We will be in contact with you as soon as possible. We look forward to helping you access child care so you can keep working during this critical time.
